Who We Are
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, mutual-help, war-time veterans organization. A community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members -- men and women -- in nearly 15,000 American Legion Posts worldwide. These Posts are organized into 55 Departments -- one each for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines.
The American Legion's national headquarters is in Indianapolis, Indiana, with additional offices in Washington, DC. In addition to thousands of volunteers serving in leadership and program implementation capacities in local communities to the Legion's standing national commissions and committees, the national organization has a regular full-time staff of about 300 employees.
Where We Are
Pleural Mesothelioma Center is an advocacy group that works to spread the awareness of asbestos-related diseases.
Veterans comprise 30% of all mesothelioma patients, as a result of exposure to asbestos. It was used in hundreds of military applications and products, including ships, because of its resistance to fire.
Mesothelioma Fund is another resourse for asbestos-related cancers. They offers free services for patients dealing with the cost of treatment, contact the Mesothelioma Fund here https://www.mesotheliomafund.com/veterans/.
